The end-Triassic extinction once again nearly drove ammonoids to extinction and perhaps only one genus survived.� The reefs that began to recover in the late Triassic were again eradicated and did not reappear until more than 10 million years later.� Bivalves, brachiopods, and gastropods lost about half of their genera.� The marine reptile placodonts, which specialized in eating mollusks, went extinct, and plesiosaurs and ichthyosaurs were the marine apex predators to begin the Jurassic.� On land, it was nearly the end for therapsids; afterward, until their final extinction in the early Cretaceous, they were marginal fringe dwellers.� All large terrestrial non-dinosaur archosaurs went extinct and left dinosaurs unchallenged for terrestrial dominance during the Jurassic Ink: The Mark of Human Identity.

Without the automobile the United States would be a far different country Do Museums Still Need Objects? (The Arts and Intellectual Life in Modern America). Another important ene rgy concept is efficiency.� For the hunter-gatherers who cooked food over the campfire, the energy was used with an efficiency of less than 5% (the energy that benefited the user, such as cooking the food, warming the air, providing light, etc.). �When humans began using hearths as they became more sedentary, their energy efficiency increased.� As humans built dwellings and fireplaces, energy efficiency increased, and today, energy efficiency in advanced industrialized civilization reaches more than 35%.� As humans kept increasing their gross energy input and the efficiency in using the energy, the energy surplus increased .� Just as with all life forms, an increased energy surplus meant an easier life and a better chance of survival. [862] � In recent years, while the USA�s GDP-per-capita has risen, its energy-consumption-per-capita has been stagnant since the 1970s .� Some have argued that it shows how much more efficient the USA�s economy has become, but it is more likely related to the USA�s de-industrialization, as heavy industry has moved to low-wage nations with weak environmental laws. [863] � The USA imports more finished goods in which the energy for mining and manufacturing them was used in other nations, like the imperial subsidy that the British received from their colonies, but far more pronounced when the USA is receiving finished industrial goods and not raw materials, as the British received from India.� In generating energy, so-called technological societies have nearly the same energy efficiency as advanced industrial ones, largely due to the entropy created by power generation .� The rise in e nergy use, particularly fossil fuel use, has been highly dramatic during the Industrial Revolution.� Today�s global hydrocarbon use has increased 800-fold since 1750, and 12-fold during the 20th century, and about 90% of the 20th century�s increase happened after World War II. [864] � The seven billion barrels of oil burned by the entire world during World War II is equal to what the USA burned in 2010. [865] � When the English began to invade North America, they stumbled into Earth�s richest continent.� An English �settler� in North America in 1670 consumed as much energy as a person today does in Uruguay and more than in about half of today�s nations.� Between 1880 and 1920, American energy consumption per capita doubled, and between World War II and 1970 it nearly doubled again, as Americans became the richest and most powerful people in world history A Brief History of Yew-Trees.

You have always eluded me except in one or two moments which seem still more dream-like than the rest. Since I came into this room you have done nothing to destroy my conviction of your unreality apart from myself. You haven't offered me your hand to touch.

From the Pe rmian extinction�s devastation arose a reptilian sheep called Lystrosaurus .� Fossil hunters of early Triassic sediments have been frustrated for many years, as nearly 95% of preserved early Triassic land animal remains are Lystrosaurus, because it was about the Permian extinction�s only land animal survivor.� There has been debate for many years about why it survived when almost nothing else did.� No single animal ever dominated Earth�s land masses as thoroughly as Lystrosaurus did during the early Triassic.� Lystrosaurus was probably a burrower (many have likened Lystrosaurus to a pig because of that burrowing), which may have provided the shelter needed to survive the Permian holocaust.� It may also have been a generalist herbivore and could eat most surviving plants. [309] � But some think that its survival, when almost every other species died, was due to luck.� Luck is a surprisingly common proposed explanation for evolutionary events and outcomes, and some creatures seemed to be in the right place at the right time while others were in the wrong place at the wrong time.� The spread of Lystrosaurus was also aided by two other facts: the land masses formed one continent, so Lystrosaurus could simply walk to dominance of Earth; and few predators capable of eating a Lystrosaurus survived.� One swamp denizen ate Lystrosaurus (being semi-aquatic may have also helped species survive the Permian extinction), as did another carnivore, but not much else did.� Lystrosaurus was a therapsid, as were the dominant land animals before the Permian extinction The Influence of Sea Power Upon the French Revolution and Empire, 1793-1812, Volume 1.
